Title

Transforming an inorganic chemistry laboratory into a Course-based Undergraduate Research Experience (CURE)

Conference Tracks

Teaching Practices (Poster Only) – Analysis, synthesis, reflection, and discussion

Abstract

In collaboration, two professors and 36 psychology students identified key questions regarding issues in ethical treatment in animal research. As a research team, the two professors facilitated the student creation of a research project including: research questions, hypotheses, stimuli, and methods and procedures and IRB approval. Students collected data, created a combined data set of 432 observations, completed statistical SPSS analyses to address class generated hypotheses. They created lab notebooks documenting the entire process including procedures, materials and analyses. Student outcomes in relation to concept understanding and ownership and challenges faced and lessons learned from the team teaching experience are discussed.
